In addition, this kit features support for the included AV out cable, allowing you to play on your television.

The viewing area is the same size as the stock display, meaning no special lens is required! The DIY kit will provide you with all that you need to install this LCD, and will require some soldering for the Game Boy speaker(not included).

Documentation

Notes

  • This is an aftermarket product and may not feel identical to its genuine counterpart
  • Some minor shell modification is required, involving cutting the screw posts on the interior front of the shell. This trimming can be accomplished with a pair of side cutters.
  • On-screen battery display is a rough estimate, and may not be accurate

Warning

  • We strongly recommend testing the display before installing it in your Game Boy Advance. Please follow our Display Testing Guide to confirm the kit is working before the adhesive is secured, the display protection sheet removed, or any non-critical soldering to the ribbon or driver PCB. We are unable to accept returns or replacements on kits that have been installed in a console. Individual replacement parts may be available in the "Included" section above.
  • The ribbon is very fragile, be sure to handle it carefully to avoid damage.
  • Too much pressure can permanently damage the display, do not force the shell closed around the LCD. Ensure the shell is properly trimmed for the display before attempting to install it.
